5 DAYS OF SOLO SWEEPSTAKES

NEVER TELL HIM THE ODDS

 

 

Everyone knows Han Solo and his Millennium Falcon made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, but did you know they can also win you some epic Solo-themed prizes?

 

 

Solo: A Star Wars Story tells the long-awaited origin story of the Star Wars universe’s most famous smuggler-turned-hero (not to mention his fearless first mate, Chewbacca), and the action-packed saga is coming to Vudu this Friday in up to 4K UHD. Pre-ordering before release day gets you a sweet $3 movie credit to add to your treasure trove, and that’s not the only loot up for grabs.

 

In celebration of Han and Chewie’s excellent adventure, we’re loading dedicated Vudu fans up with all the Solo swag a landspeeder can carry.

 

 

All week long we’ll be charting a course through our various Vudu social media accounts and giving out awesome prize packs along the way. The journey starts here on the Vudu blog, with one lucky winner taking home a set of Solo Black Series collectible action figures from Hasbro, including Han, Chewbacca, Qi’ra, and Lando Calrissian.

 

Since Han and Qi’ra have to steal to survive at the beginning of Solo, we want to know which of the Star Wars movie you can’t live without. Enter your response here for your chance to bring these lifelike figures from a galaxy far, far away to a desk or bookshelf near you.

May the Force (and/or luck) be with you!

 

 

MEET THE DINOS OF JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM

TERRIBLE LIZARDS, GREAT FUN

 

 

At this point in the Jurassic Park franchise, it’s safe to say that filling a theme park with genetically engineered dinosaurs may not be in the public’s best interest. But at the same time, it’s hard to argue with watching dinosaurs fill the screen – especially when you see the looks of wonder and amazement on kids’ faces.

 

And because everyone loves dinos, we want to make sure your up on yours before you and your family watch add them to your collection. Because we all know the – “which dinosaur is that one?” question is as sure to pop up as sure as movie candy sticks to your teeth. So after you pre-order Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (in up to 4K + HDR) to prepare to share the fossilized fun with your family, be sure to gather the hatchlings and check out the Mesozoic monsters and awesome facts about the dinosaurs featured in the new movie.

 

Don’t forget, order before release and you’ll even receive a $3 movie credit to use after release day for even more movie & TV magic.

 

ISLAND BEFORE TIME

 

 

In Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Isla Nublar is home to gentle giants and powerful predators of every shape and size, and since the events of Jurassic World they are now free to roam as they please. The Brachiosaurus, an herbivore seen slowly sauntering through the plains, is famous for its long snake-like neck and is believed to have weighed between 30 and 45 metric tons when full grown. That’s a lot of salad.

 

 

The Ankylosaurus, despite it’s fearsome looking armor and clubbed tail, is also a leaf-eater that used these powerful adaptations to defend itself and its family from less vegan-friendly foes. It needs these protections because it is fairly slow, but can be seen hustling along to escape from danger in the new film.

 

 

Gallimimus, seen stampeding in multiple Jurassic Park films, is quite the opposite: what it lacks in external protection it make up for with its unbelievable running speed of up to 60 mph. This omnivore can make a snack out of you before you can say its unusual name, and predators that pursue it are in for some extremely fast food.

 

 

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, who could forget the Mosasaurus? The enormous sea lizard makes a triumphant return from the first Jurassic World, and with an omnivorous diet that includes anything it can get its expanding jaw on, it’s the last thing you want to see on a day at the beach (as seen in the trailer).

 

 

The jet-black, nightmare fueling Indoraptor that stars in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom….. doesn’t exist! And thank goodness for that. With night-vision eyes, hyper-intelligence, and razor sharp claws, it’s one piece of movie magic that we shouldn’t bring to life anytime soon.

 

 

Didn’t see your favorite? Well this is only the tip of the Pteranodon when it comes to the weird and wild creatures that populate Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Pre-order now to see them all and dino-size your family’s movie night.

 

 

SCIENCE BITES BACK IN JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM

YOU WON’T LIKE THEM WHEN THEY’RE HUNGRY

 

 

What could have more bite than Shark Week, induce more heart palpitations than Lobster Fest, and grab the attention of more kids than the Puppy Bowl? Dinosaurs of course! And it’s time we started counting down to next week’s release of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom in up to 4K UHD on Vudu. Luckily, you don’t need to wait for the next extinction-level event to get the movie. You can pre-order it now and get a $3 movie credit to spend as you please after release day. Once you’re finished enjoying all the spine-tingling, human-munching thrills of course.

 

Bro, do you even science?

 

 

In the newest installment in the Jurassic Park franchise, the “fallen kingdom” isn’t just the once beautiful Isla Nublar. As lava ravages the cloned-dinosaurs’ island home, the kingdom of humanity must reckon with the consequences of creating the genetically-engineered beasts. As one returning character warns (in a scene-stealing cameo), it may already be too late to close the Pandora’s Box of Velociraptors, Mosasauruses, and hybrid horrors leftover from Jurassic World.

 

 

Jurassic Park isn’t the first franchise to deal with experiments gone apocalyptically wrong. Just as John Hammond’s scientists ignored the warning signs in their pursuit of a new race of revived dinosaurs, the negligence of biotech firm Gen-Sys ignites a full-scale interspecies war in the Planet of the Apes series. The pros and cons of ape world vs. dinosaur world (take your stinking claws off me you damn dirty dinos!) are up for debate, but the message is clear: meddling in the gene pool can have unintended results.

 

 

But why should monkeys and lizards have all the fun? In the Resident Evil films, it’s humans that are subjected to the unregulated experiments of a shady genetic research corporation, and the resultant zombie army causes enough trouble for six films worth of gory genetically modified chaos.

 

 

And why have hundreds of medium-sized mistakes when you can have a handful of very, very big ones? The Godzilla franchise is home to countless skyscraper-sized monsters (or Kaiju) including moths, aliens, and-of course-dinosaurs. Not all are the direct result of human tampering (unless you count disturbing their centuries-long nap in the middle of the ocean), but when they’re not created by our nuclear warfare, genetic experimentation, or corporate greed they tend to be bailing us out from those same problems. The humanity-Kaiju relationship status is “It’s Complicated.”

 

 

And just because a scientific disaster isn’t Indominus Rex-sized doesn’t mean it’s not a problem. Just ask the Szalinski family, who are consistently being shrunk, blown up, and otherwise inconvenience by dad Wayne’s ill-advised inventions in the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids movies. It’s all family fun until somebody ends up in the vacuum cleaner.

 

MORE RAPTORS, MORE PROBLEMS

 

 

So, what have we learned? Probably nothing. But for now, just leave the super-science to the “professionals,” and pre-order Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom to get your $3 movie credit before the offer (or the world) ends.

 

 

Last chance for pre-order and $3 movie credit back

Our new favorite guy in a red suit is both NAUGHTY AND NICE

 

 

You’d better watch out. You’d better not cry. And frankly, you better assess your tolerance level for violence, sarcasm, and unicorns – because Deadpool 2 (the “sequel to the first movie”) is coming to town, tomorrow! And this time our new favorite red-suited rascal (sorry Santa) is bringing some gifts of his own.

 

 

If you pre-order Deadpool 2 or the Deadpool 2-Movie Collection (Double the fun! Double the movies! Double the entendre!) before midnight tonight, you’ll receive a $3 Vudu credit to use once the movie drops. But today is the last day, so get that baby hand moving.

 

But wait! There’s more! You’ll also be entered to win one of just 1,000 Vudu-exclusive DP2 posters! That’s right: when you’re done watching all the explosions, skydives, and firefights (literal and not) of Deadpool 2 in up to eye-exploding 4K UHD visual quality, you can turn to your wall and enjoy the same Deadpool-riffic visuals in limited edition poster. We’d show you what it looks like, but then we’d have to sic X-Force on you. Oh, wait. Well, ok, you can see it here.

 

 

But still wait! There’s still more! With your purchase of Deadpool 2 in HDX quality or higher, you also receive the previously unseen, practically unsafe, possibly unconstitutional Super Duper Cut with a full 15 minutes of too-Deadpool-for-theaters extra footage. It’s a limb-riping good time, but you’ll probably want to wash your ears and eyes out with soap after watching it – heck maybe just go full-body sanitization.

 

 

And if all that wasn’t enough, we’re hosting the Deadpool 2 #VUDUVIEWINGPARTY to end all Deadpool 2 #VUDUVIEWINGPARTIES. (Going out on top, since there’s only going to be one. Maximum effort.) Because no one should have to Deadpool alone (and because we have way too much awesome swag for us to keep for ourselves). 

 

FRIDAY. 7PM. PACIFIC TIME. Be there or you might as well be in the Icebox. We’ll be kicking back, enjoying the movie, and spreading good cheer with the funnest facts, nerdiest trivia, and dopest prizes this side of grandma’s bingo social. Get your pre-order on, follow @vudufans on the ol’ Twitter, and click here to RSVP while the RSVP-ing is good.
